The race is FAST, FLAT, SCENIC and INCLUSIVE suitable for anyone looking to complete their first 100 miler or a seasoned veteran who is going after a PR. There is a 30 hour time cutoff.

If you’re looking to run 100, but the race is inaccessible to you financially, please contact the race director through the form below. Every year several runners ask that we donate their registration to someone in need. We can fit you in.

The Course

The start/finish line is at Missing Falls Brewery in downtown Akron, OH. The course runs along The Towpath Trail following the Ohio & Erie Canalway. The Towpath is a crushed limestone trail that occasionally yields to asphalt or concrete walkway. The start is in downtown Akron, Ohio and travels south on the Towpath to the Crystal Springs Trailhead in Stark Parks, approximately 24 miles, then returns north. You can obtain aid from the start/finish line on your way to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park all the way to the Canal Exploration Center in Valley View, Ohio before turning around at approximately 74 miles to return to Akron, OH. There are aid stations approximately every 5-7 miles apart throughout the course. The aid stations will be staffed by seasoned ultrarunners and will offer water, electrolyte drink and various food items including hot foods at night. Elevation gain over the entirety of the course is 807 feet.
